Relax in the beautiful wine region of Murrumbateman with award winning wineries and locally made produce. See the stars at night or walk down to a tree lined trail at the end of our quiet street.

A great retreat for couples or a small family who want a relaxing city escape in a warm, homelike environment!

We used convict made bricks to build our home so we have a great piece of Australian history to share with you.

Louise and Norbert were most welcoming and hospitable. The property is peaceful and rural with kangaroos and birdlife aplenty. An excellent location from which to explore the Canberra region vineyards. The bedroom was private with a very comfortable bed, and there was a good sized private bathroom opposite. For activities beyond sleeping we were offered full use of the very large sitting room with big TV and similarly large kitchen/breakfast room. Great value for the location, and we quickly felt like we'd known Louise and Norbert for years!

A warm atmosphere and friendly hosts. Great to be out in the country with horses in the back paddock

Louise and Norbitt made us feel very much at home. They are particularly friendly and relaxed hosts. They went to extraordinary lengths to accommodate both our teenage kids in separate beds. They also supply a good range of things for breakfast incl fresh laid home eggs. Bedrooms are very small and slightly airless but beds are comfy. Nice rural area close to a number of good wineries and upmarket restaurants. No cafes around though. All in all good value for brief stopover.

Response from Louise:
Hi Evan, So pleased you enjoyed your stay. The rooms are small I agree but I hope comfort outweighs that. When we have two guests we let them use the second room for their belongings etc this allows for more room in the main bedroom. All the bedrooms have external French doors with fly screens and can be opened. We find it is the norm for Canberra to cool down in the evening with a fresh breeze . We also had other fans. I do wish you had expressed your concerns when here so I could have made your stay more comfortable. :) There is a cafe on the main road in a period home with outside and inside seating. Perhaps this was not obvious and was closed due to the Christmas and New Year break. .We also have a takeaway and the pub has good food. Hope we see you all again and will make sure all options are used for a more comfortable stay.

We were looking for a place to stay away from the city with the convenience of access to Canberra and this worked really well for us. We had a very comfortable and restful stay, thank you Louise.
